Florida Family Fun: Discover Martin County this Summer

What if you could have the best of both worlds—a memorable family vacation with the kids and a romantic holiday without them? Martin County, Florida can give you both. With 22 miles of Atlantic shoreline, this charming hidden gem of the South Florida coast offers activities for the whole family. Let the camp-cation begin.

For the Kids:Summer-vacation-martin-county-florida

There are a variety of daytime summer camps to keep the kiddos occupied, from water-sports camps on the beach to inland retre ats focusing on nature and horseback-riding.

Like all great summer camps, there’s a unique educational component to each experience: at the various surfing and snorkeling camps, kids learn about water safety and the ocean. They can learn the basics of navigating sea vessels at sailing camp, or how to bait a hook and identify different water species at fishing camp. There’s even a nature camp for land-faring children who prefer to stay away from the ocean. For the budding artists, Martin County hosts a variety of arts-oriented camps, from photography and painting to music, dance and theatre.

For the Parents:

Meanwhile, mom and dad can have some much-needed alone time while enjoying everything Martin County offers: outdoor adventures, beach relaxation, art galleries, and shopping.Summer-vacation-martin-county-florida

Parents looking to absorb the local culture can visit one of Martin County’s many galleries, museums and historical sites in Stuart, Jensen Beach, Port Salerno, and Hobe Sound—there’s even a scuba/snorkeling tour of a shipwreck site—or they can spend the day shopping at the locally owned boutiques and shops scattered throughout Martin County’s historic downtowns.

For those looking for a more rugged experience, the area offers no shortage of natural wonders begging to be explored. Hike, kayak, bike, birdwatch—or just find a remote spot on the beach and nap the day away.

For the whole family:

At the end of each day, the whole family can come back together to taste the local flavors at one of Martin County’s oceanfront restaurants.

There’s also plenty to do with the children after camp ends. Observe the area’s logger head sea turtles or feed thestingrays; go fishing or lounge on the beach; hit a waterpark or enjoy an outdoor concert on the Riverwalk. In Martin County, it’s all for the taking.
